I loved the movie, Tim. I’m gonna see it again with a good friend of mine, I always introduce her into music stuff. The movie was very good but of course you shouldn’t expect anything else than Ian Curtis dreaming life. I know a friend who was disappointed cause he wanted to see more of the band and more of the post-punk other bands (which haven’t started before Curtis died). And it’s more a dreaming interpretation of Curtis life, something more poetic. But I understand what you mean, Tim. Especially the comparaison with The Virgin Suicides is very relevant.
But I loved the movie anyway. Loved the b&w industrial look, the industrial classic english suburbs. The trendy look of Ian. And the girlfriend, the belgian one, love her. She also plays in Der Untergang. She should play more roles, she’s so underrated and unknown.
The good thing about is movie is that maybe we’ll see more good music movies about small rock bands, Joy Division is sure cult but still not as much known by the average (except in England maybe) than other huge bands like The Clash or The Cure from the UK.
